Each of our students is assigned a unique User ID, which is critically important for verifying the identity of students who submit assignments when there are multiple users with the same names, as well as for when students submit assignments under a "nickname" or "preferred name" that differs from what is on record with Canvas. I'm surprised to find there is no simple way to view thesee. Currently an instructor must export the gradebook to see these ID numbers.
The SIS Login ID is already shown in the gradebook; why not also show the SIS User ID? Or at least allow instructors to toggle between the two.
